Tonight is The Night. We will find out who the Phillies will take with their number 16 pick. Will he be a high schooler? A college player? Pitcher? Outfielder? Second baseman? Who knows! I just hope he has a funny name.
MLB Network has draft coverage tonight. I'll be your host here on The Good Phight, reporting picks and bumbling through gracelessly until TGP King of the Draft Cormican can bail me out. MLBN is trying to make the draft a big thing, but they have a ways to go. One telltale sign is the suits of the draftees. From what I've seen, they're nowhere near the insane level of the NFL draft. Though I'm sure I'll make a fair amount of "Today's Man" jokes.
Do you want draft info? I have it! Check out our draft hub: http://www.thegoodphight.com/2013-phillies-draft-previews There you can find all sorts of handy info about players and rules and theories.
What should you expect of the Phillies draft tonight? It just so happens that we have that too! Right here: http://www.thegoodphight.com/2013/6/5/4391980/2013-phillies-draft-preview-what-to-expect
And what if you need just basic info? Such as "What is a draft?" or "What are they doing?" or "Why are we here?" (OK, maybe not that last one.) Here's Cormican's MLB Draft 101 piece: http://www.thegoodphight.com/2013/6/6/4383738/mlb-draft-101
